Japan is rightly regarded as one of the most technologically advanced countries in the world, yet the development and deployment of Internet technology in Japan has taken a different trajectory compared with Western nations.

This monumental series, acclaimed as a "masterpiece of comprehensive scholarship" in the New York Times Book Review, reveals the impact of Asia’s high civilizations on the development of modern Western society. The authors examine the ways in which European encounters with Asia have altered the development of Western society, art, literature, science, and religion since the Renaissance. In Volume III: A Century of Advance, the authors have researched seventeenth-century European writings on Asia in an effort to understand how contemporaries saw Asian societies and peoples.

Unlike much analysis about regulation in Asia which focuses on globalisation and the transplant effect, leaving domestic influence over commercial regulation under-researched and under-theorized, this book focuses on how local actors influence regulatory change. It explores the complex economic and regulatory factors that generate social demand for state regulation and shows how local networks, courts, democratic processes and civil society have a huge influence on regulatory systems. It examines the particular circumstances in a wide range of Asian countries, provides transnational comparison

This authoritative book provides a comprehensive and penetrating analysis of the emerging security terrain in Northeast Asia. Leading American and Asian scholars explore the shifting power configurations in Northeast Asia represented by China’s rise, Japan’s quest for a normal state, North Korea’s nuclear ambitions, South Korea’s projection into a middle power, and U.S. strategic realignments. They also examine new flashpoints such as anti-Americanism; the North Korean crisis; and the clash of parochial nationalisms among China, Japan, and Korea. Shedding light on Asia&
